Whether you are commuting for work or need some help passing the time on a long stretch of road between destinations, having a good repertoire of activities can help make the time fly by and make it rewarding in and of itself, which is why we’ve put together a list of the top six ways to pass the time.  


Reading is a great way to pass the time. So long as it doesn’t make you car sick in the process, you can easily get lost in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, magazines, and more. Just remember to download the digital content you wish to read in advance. We recommend having a variety of: 

  • eBooks
  • PDFs 
  • Articles 
  • Digital Magazines 

Listen and Learn 

If you are driving or get car sick while reading in a moving vehicle, then your next best option is to listen. Mix up the regular music playlist by adding podcasts and audiobooks to your digital library. 


Free to listen to and a variety of great options out there means you can enjoy a podcast that goes over your favorite topics, and in some cases from your favorite celebrities


Get lost in an audiobook and enjoy the age-old tradition of oral storytelling. 

Curate Your Mood With the Right Playlist 

When you do listen to music, you will want to create playlists to set your mood. If you are stuck in traffic, put on a soothing playlist. When you are out on the open road, then put on some fun jams to keep your mood up. 

Save Video for Offline Use 

You can watch films, YouTube videos, TV shows and more offline, but you will want to do this at home as your data plan can and will be eaten up from both streaming and downloading a video for offline. 

Play Great Games at Your Finger Tips 

Great games are always a great idea, but you need to plan in advance to ensure that you have options available to play at any given time. App-based games that can be played offline can help get you through periods where you are underground or just in the middle of nowhere. Casino games, on the other hand, can be a great way to pass the time or to reward yourself for learning something new, particularly because they are so engrossing. All you need to get started with Unibet and similar casino sites is to sign up to websites within the states you will be visiting. 

Tip: Set spending limits so that your casino game fun continues to be a great way to pass the time and not something that starts to stress you out. 

Catch Up On Some Zzs 

Having a good old quality nap is always a great idea when it comes to commuting, but if you really want to invest some time catching up on those Zzs, then you will want to invest in proper gear. This means bringing a neck pillow or bed pillow with you in the car on a road trip. You can follow up with a sleeping mask to block out light. If you are sharing the driving portion of a long commute, catching up on your sleep between driving bouts can help keep you alert and safe on the roads.
